My photos are coming out dark on my Nikon D5100...should I be using an additional flash? An extra one attached to the camera? Sometimes they look dark on the live view and come out okay after the picture...


The build in flash, will be useful within several meters (15 to 20 feet) if it is really dark.
Your camera should be capable of taking pictures in poor light conditions. Try to shoot in automatic mode. The mode dail to AUTO. (green camera symbol). Then view the picture with info. There you can see the ISO, Aperture and shutter time. From there you can experiment for darker or lighter pictures. For this you can choose M, A,S or P.
In each of these modes, you can use the following steps.
On top of the camera, close to the shutter release button you see a little knob with a +/- sign. If you press that button, you should see a 0.
If you see a - figure, this means the picture you shoot all be darker than normal. If you see a + sign with a figure it means the picture will be brighter. While pressing that button and turning the command dail, you can choose -3 to +3 EV. That is much darker and much brighter.
If you shoot many pictures in bad light conditions, you could buy an external flash. A Nikon flash will work very good and automatic, with your camera, because camera and flash will communicate and help each other to make better pictures. Cheaper external flashes can work too, but most of the time you must change settings manual on the flash. Never use old flashes, that were build for analog cameras. They sometimes switch with a voltage higher than your camera can handle. The camera can be damaged by such a flash.

Flash is not firing


Very little to go on, but in every camera you can switch off the possibility to flash. How to switch it on must be very easy, because it is always in the top menus of every camera. Looking on the back of your camera, with the menu on, you should see a flash symbol, with a bar through the symbol, then it is off. Try to switch it on. If the symbol is on (without bar) look if it is dark enough so the flash should work. You also could try to reset the camera to the default settings. But is the flash still does not work something else could be wrong. Just try an external flash. If it does nothing, after you tried everything above, I can't think of anything else. Success.

When using flash it takes a couple of seconds to take photo hence picture is blurred


It's probably because you have enabled the slow sync flash mode.
To switch to the normal flash mode (auto flash) press your left directional key until the flash mode indicator near the top left of the screen (an icon with a "lightning" symbol) changes to an icon with a letter A next to the lightning symbol.
The slow sync flash mode is different from the normal flash mode; in this mode, the camera exposure duration can be a few seconds and the flash actuates at the beginning of the exposure. Although this is useful for certain photography techniques, you have to enable normal flash mode to take pictures in the normal way without blur.

Hi, the photos i take are getting blurred and the image is not at all clear no matter how shot the distance may be i click the image.the only new icon i see on the screen is vibration warning symbol along...


If you are shooting in Auto mode with flash, this should solve your problem. Make sure you are not dictating any of the settings, i.e. choosing a longer shutter speed, a very small aperture setting, or a very low ISO (sensitivity) setting.

Typically the vibration warning icon will appear when the camera is trying to use a long shutter speed without flash in order to get the right exposure for a darker scene. Your outdoor (bright light) photos are probably OK.

In dim light with a point and shoot camera, you can have your choice between 1. blurry (using a relatively slow shutter speed), 2. dark (using a shorter shutter speed but no flash), or 3. a good photo with flash (which uses a medium shutter speed and added light from the flash)

Can't take photographs when flash is on


Hi
The powershot s5 IS does in fact have some strange behaviour issues especially on the first rev firmware. For example if you take 15-20 flash photos consecutively without powering down your camera the flash recycle times will increase to about 15sec, so you'll have to wait about 15sec before you can take another flash photo. The work around is to power down the camera and then turn it back ON. Another strange behaviour is manifested by its inability to lock focus after taking a "no-flash" photo, then popping up the flash and trying to take a flash photo. Again the work-around is to power down the camera, pop-up the flash and then power it back up. Confirmed these behaviours in two other cameras of the same model.

G9 flash


In your display, is the small lightning symbol appear on the screen? Try cycling through the various flash options by pressing the "flash" lightning symbol to the right of the monitor. If the flash is set to flash when there's not enough light at the G9's descretion (with an "A" next to the symbol) then the flash may or may not go off. I oftentimes set the flash to go off all the time if the camera is not doing it automatically (with the A next to the symbol). Being in Auto mode versus the other preset exposure modes affect the flash options available too.
